Ways to pay levies
We’ll send your levy invoice by post once you've filed a tax return. Find out how to pay and what to do if you have any problems.

Due to the difficult times some businesses are facing, we’ve delayed invoicing until October for the 2020/21 financial year.
You’ll need your ACC number and invoice number.
Our bank, Westpac, charges a 1.9% convenience fee on all credit card payments. We don't keep any of this fee.
Self-service (MyACC for Business)
Using my ACC for Business, you can view your invoice, view your transaction history and pay your levy as a direct debit over 3, 6 or 10 months.
- Use the one-off bill payment option
- Search for ACC as a payee, or make a transfer to our Westpac bank account:
Name of account – Accident Compensation Corporation
Account number – 03 0502 0287400 009
Add these details to make sure we can track the payment back to you:
Particulars – Levy account name
Code – ACC policy number eg YN123456E or 1234567890
Reference – Invoice number eg A123456789
If you're paying from an overseas bank account:
SWIFT code - WPACNZ2W
You may also have to pay an international banking fee.
Direct debit or by instalments
You can pay your levy as a direct debit on your due date, or if your invoice is $250 or more (excluding GST) you can pay in instalments of three months, six months, or 10 months (this option includes a 5.4% admin fee) as a monthly payment.
To set this up, fill in the direct debit and instalment payments form or use MyACC for Business. We need to receive this at least 10 days before the due date.
Send it to us by post or email:
ACC Business Service Centre
PO Box 795
Already paying by direct debit or instalments?
If you’re on a standard 3, 6 or 10 month payment plan, this should automatically roll over. We'll then send your payment schedule out with your invoice. Your payment schedule will tell you when any payments will come out of your account.
If you're not on a standard plan, you’ll need to contact us to set this up when you receive your invoice. We'll then send your payment schedule separate from your invoice.
Pay in person
Present your invoice at any Westpac branch.
